Lovely place to stay, very friendly helpful hostess. Room very nice except the cupboard is to small. It houses the fridge and a few dry items and my husband unpacks his whole suitcase, so there is no space for me, especially if one stays more than one day. Big bonus is that our car was cleaned before we left. If we are ever in the area again, we will stay there again.

We had a lovely stay at the lodge - everything was clean and comfortable, hosts friendly.  Breakfast was delicious.

We only stayed for 1 night but it had all the amenities necessary for a comfortable stay. Nice secure parking and restaurants right next door and across the road.  Location was excellent and easy to find. We received a warm welcome on our arrival. We stayed in a luxury room which had a huge bathroom, so welcomed at the end of a day of driving. Breakfast was an amazing feast of all types of food. There was also a pool area but we were there in winter so didn't make use of this. Would highly recommend.

Lovely B&B located in a great part of town. The room was located in a garden setting and tastefully furnished with a very comfortable bed and huge bathroom. Breakfast was amazing and the car wash as an added bonus.
